Good But Not Great by Big John - Kansas City on 12/08/2009. Trim: 2009 Scion tC Sports Coupe 4-Spd AT, Owned 1 year.

Pros: Nice commuter car; sharp and zippy and gets 27-28 mpg day in, day out. Can easily carry my whole family, including my two teenage sons.
Cons: The interior materials are extremely cheap looking; it has developed a couple of little annoying rattles in 18K miles; hard to get completely comfortable (I'm 6'-4" and I fit, but the adjustments are coarse and it's hard to get everything exactly right). The base stereo would be good if you could just dial down the bass. You either take it off the enhanced modes (which makes the sound poor) or you use the enhanced modes and put up with the boomy bass even at -5 bass.
Overall review: I like it, but disappointing after my previous car, a 2004 Toyota Solara. The Solara was more comfortable, much better materials, more quiet, rattle-free, same performance, and got better gas mileage (the Scion has the same engine/transmission as the Solara and weighs less, so go figure!). But my teens just looove the Scion.
